This Sarasota Holiday Light Display Is Top-10 In The Country
We’re in the heart of the Christmas season and if you’re looking to add more attractions to your list, you’re in luck. Selby Gardens in Sarasota, Florida has one of the best light displays in the country and it’s just getting started. Lights in Bloom is back this year, and better than ever.
Lights in Bloom takes over the Selby Botanical Gardens with over 2 million dazzling lights across more than 15 acres of gardens and walkways of the Sarasota campus. The gardens are located smack in the heart of downtown Sarasota. There are photo ops for the family, activities and entertainment that will keep you around all night. You can expect balloon twisting, face painting and more.
Jennifer O. Rominiecki, President & CEO of Selby Gardens said, “Now in its 20th year, our award-winning Lights in Bloom® show really has become a must-do tradition in the Sarasota region. We love welcoming community members of all ages to experience our downtown bayfront sanctuary magically transformed for the year-end holidays.”
Lights in Bloom® is ranked #6 in the country by USA Today as 10 Best Readers Choice Contest for Best Botanical Garden Holiday Lights and also ranked top-10 back in 2019 and 2021.
